May 2nd, 2018 · Comments Off on Minibeast hunt

We had great fun in 1st class hunting for minibeasts in the playground. We spotted lots of different insects in the grass, under the window sills, on the playground and in the soil. We saw snails, bumble bees, earthworms, woodlouse, spiders and ants. When we got back to class we picked a minibeasts and wrote down all we learned about them.

April 16th, 2018 · Comments Off on Aistear – Animal Theme

We started a new theme in aistear today. For our role play area we made a pet shop, it’s a special pet shop with monkeys and giraffes! We are acting out the Chicken Licken story for the small world area. We also can create stories around the farm here. In our art area, we are making animals from clay. Today, children made fish and dogs. For our exploration area we are mixing paints to create new colours. One group made a great pet shop in our construction area today.

We planted cress, peas and spinach seeds.  We looked after them very well and made sure our plants got enough water and sunlight.  We are also enjoying learning about biodiversity.

Everyone in junior infants made their own car. We used egg cartons, straws and bottle caps. We proved how important it is to wear seat belts. We had a car race with some characters wearing seat belts and some not. It was great fun!
